I didn't get that impression. Especially since posting the patches led

The only giant design flaws that were discussed were related to
stackable filesystems in general and affect current mainline code
(eCryptfs) just as much as DazukoFS. Since eCryptfs also has these
issues and was accepted mainline, I did not view this as a reason to
As I stated in the original patch posts, one of the reasons for adding
another stackable filesystem to mainline would be to help identify
common functionality between the stackable filesystems. And then

affect any stackable filesystem in Linux.
